The Latest Salmonella Outbreak Is Being Traced Back to Precut Melons

The CDC's finding resulted in the recall of pre-cut melons, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, and mixed fruit packages from the stores from Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and OH states.

The CDC said the contaminated melon was distributed to stores across the country including Costco, Trader Joe's, Walmart, Walgreens and Whole Foods.

Consumers with the recalled products are advised to throw them away or return them to the store for a refund.

Those affected by Salmonella often develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated food. The CDC says 21 people have been hospitalized.

The FDA is now reporting that 60 Salmonella illnesses in five different states are under investigation.

Trump says they will either have a better agreement on NAFTA or two deals involving separate trade deals with Canada and Mexico. In early April, Kremlin aide Vladimir Ushakov said Trump had proposed a meeting with Putin during a telephone call.

Most of those affected said that they bought the fruit at Kroger or Walmart stores. On the other hand, in MI alone, there were 32 salmonellosis cases confirmed by the CDC. The products were sold in clear plastic containers.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -If you went shopping in North Carolina recently and brought back some pre-cut melon, you need to throw it out. Individuals who believe they may have become ill with Salmonella should contact their health care provider. No deaths have been reported so far.

Packages of precut melon - including watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew, along with fruit salads that contain those melons - are being recalled from major retailers in eight states. The CDC investigation indicates pre-cut melons, including fruit salads. In such cases, the salmonella infection may spread to the bloodstream and to other body sites, leading to a life-threatening infection that requires prompt treatment with antibiotics.

'The people who got sick reported getting chicks and ducklings from places such as feed supply stores, websites, hatcheries, and from relatives, ' the CDC said. The elderly, infants, and those with compromised immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.
